Grandparents' Farmhouse Phone Becomes a Lasting Memory


You never know where a family keepsake may take you. This project started with a photo on a customer's cell of her grandparent's farmhouse phone that was leased for over 75 years. The phone company refused to sell the phone when the landline was finally disconnected but our customer, determined to capture the memory, saved the typed number from the center dial and the local lumber mill ad with enlarged numbers to assist dialing. After our customer shared the phone's story, we used our Gallery Moments services to provide a print of the phone on aluminum, special ordered an antique dial identical to the phone in the photo, and assembled everything in a shadow box designed to emulate the utilitarian black phone itself. Protected with museum glass, the clarity is almost glare free as if you could dial out at any time. Our customer loved the result and we enjoyed creating a new family heirloom to transcend time for her. Let You've Been Framed protect and share your cherished memories from countless yesterdays today.

Add Clarity With Tru Vue Museum Glass

Wow! What a difference Museum Glass can make to your darker or more intricate images that we frame for you as well as three-dimensional items that you need shadowboxed. 


The reflecting Trek Bicycle store's neon sign across the street and my hand aiming my phone provide the best examples of how the technology inherent in museum quality glass reduces reflection while adding clarity significantly. Notice how it disappears when it reaches the pane of Museum Glass on the right. For a limited time, show this Facebook post and receive 15% off Museum Glass if you choose to upgrade.

Out of the 60's & Into a Shadowbox

Remember those gum wrapper chains made popular in the 60's? A customer of ours came across this impressive specimen made by his mother in HS tucked away for no one to see. Recognizing its beauty and significance and thinking it deserved more recognition, he had it shadowboxed into wall decor as a special gift. Youve Been Framed is experienced in turning all your heirlooms into lasting gifts of quality.


Apparently gum chains have made a real comeback too. Use this link to relive part of your teenage years:

Celebrate Child's Play

Preserving your children's art through the years certainly brightens any room but also celebrates their accomplishment and builds confidence. Studies show children that explore and experience success in the arts perform at a higher level in their academic endeavors.


These white shadow box frames add interest and depth to colorful but otherwise flat childrens art. The collection makes a stunning statement and backdrop for a child's play area.
